Attractive, but Expensive sleeves for Yu-Gi-Oh! double sleeving
Reviewed in the United States on January 30, 2021
These are KMC Akashiya Barrier "Character Guard" Mini size sleeves and they are good. They are 65×91mm so they fit snuggly over official Konami sleeves and they also work comfortably with DragonShield Japanese size sleeves as well (see my pictures). I usually put my inner sleeve right side up and my outer sleeve upside down. You may experience air pockets doing this. This can be remedied by lightly pressing the card flat so the air can escape. The sleeves have a very nice dagger design on the corners of the face and a slight slick feel to them. You can see through them pretty well and that sheerness lets the beauty or blandness of your sleeves shine through. They also make certain cards look extra beautiful. You can shuffle them fairly easily. There will be an occasional snag here and there. Also when they are new new they might slide when you have your deck set down. The sleeves themselves are alright, but they need a certain amount of care. These sleeves get sticky and nasty easily. Please do not handle your cards after/while eating. Take your time and clean up after yourself. The reason you buy these is to increase the lifespan of your expensive cardboard. These do a good job at that and make your cards look better as well, but you have to take care of them.
TL;DR - Sleeves are good, but a bit pricey. They need to be taken care of to experience maximum usage.
